This talk is part of a series investigating power dynamics in artworks across the collections. Public images of rulers serve as potent symbols of power and propaganda. In ancient Rome, tyrannical emperors were deposed and assassinated, their likenesses defaced by angry citizens and sometimes by official decree. Considering intersections of art and power, the curatorial team discusses how artists engage with social and political crises, use art to upset systems of power, and imagine more equitable futures. Led by: Amy Brauer, Curator of the Collections, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art. Free and open to the public. To join the talk and for additional information, click here.
